    Windows 8 Repair Disc Doesn't Work

    Has anyone tested the Windows 8 System Repair Disc described in How to Create a "System Repair Disc" (CD/DVD) in Windows 8? Here's what happened when I restarted my Windows 8 laptop with that CD in the optical drive:

    The disc started to spin and I saw the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." I pressed the space bar. The disc was apparently being read. Then after a minute or two, the computer restarted and again I saw ""Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." and again I pressed the space bar and again the disc was read and then my computer rebooted again and...this repeated several times until I finally gave up and let the computer boot normally.

    Yes, the BIOS is configured to boot from the optical drive first.

    Makes no difference which key I press - space bar or any other key.

    I tested this disc on the same computer I used to make the disc.

    Any suggestions on how to make this system repair disc work?

    Test it on another computer, see if it boots there. If not create another one.

    Thanks for offering to help, but I'm the only person I know who has a Windows 8 computer. I made this disc on my computer, and it's no good to me if it doesn't boot my computer. If it matters, I made three discs - none worked.
